Americans are starving to death?

Excerpts from: Wake-up call': 1 in 6 went hungry in America in 2008, By Marisol Bello, USA today
Forty-nine million people in American households — one in six — went hungry or had insufficient food at some point in 2008, the highest number since the government began tracking the problem in 1995. . .

The report, issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, found that 17 million people in the U.S. went hungry or did not eat regularly for a few days of each month over seven or eight months last year. That's a 45% increase from 12 million people in 2007. In 2008, 16.7 million children did not eat regularly at some point, up from 12.4 million in 2007. . .

U.N. officials say 1 billion people — one in six globally — don't get enough to eat.
Questions: 1. What is "enough to eat?" 2. If these statistics are true, how can America's population be increasing and the primary health issues of heart disease and diabetes be caused from obesity?

Somebody is not telling the truth

  1. Overpopulation is a myth. The earth is cooling. H1N1 was vastly overblown. America is safe from attacks.

    How many more myths, in the name of expanding government, must reality dispel?
